Marked Allegro, this energetic excerpt in triple meter alternates phrases of sustained grandeur, with imitative, dancing motives. Students enjoy these contrasts and are gratified by the study of this Classical music. The traditional Gloria text appears in Latin and the score includes an English option as well. A very accessible piece will make your young choir sound (and feel) mature. Although parts are not included in the score, the piece would be enhanced by a string ensemble accompaniment.
